NOTE: Previously my site was at badcyborg.net, but it's since been rehoused here at HBO, to where links should automatically redirect.

If you're looking to get more fun out of campaign mode for the original Halo, and also Halo 3, ODST and Reach, you're in the right place because there are over a million words of cyborg-happy yammering here. In particular, for the original there's a massive section of fun backed up by hundreds of movies. So come on in and get a bit of red mist worked up under your visor! To help get you started, here are some random pictures from articles on the site. Click to enlarge, or click a caption to jump to the relevant page.
